the debt, they would have been eager to let all the bush tax cuts expire. the cbo has shown that if we did that, debt as a share of the economy would fall to half in the next ten years. and if we were to leave the bush cuts in place, it would double. so, no, they're not serious about cutting deficits. they're serious about continuing to pose as the party of tax cuts for the rich. >> and i want to point out that just about an hour after we got the report on the gdp, senate minority leader mitch mcconnell gave this warning about government spending. here it is. >> this, my colleagues, is the europeanization of america. this is the pathway to greece. >> really? your thoughts on that. >> well, there is one way that we are on a pathway to greece. in greece they do not have an effective tax system, and people cheat left and right. we are starving the irs. i've been talking to people inside the irs whose units have been cut 30, 40, 50% in personnel, and they're not auditing, and they're not going after the tough cases that will mean the less money for the government and the less money for all gov

, particularly when it comes to confidence, it was down in january because folks took a hit with that payroll tax cut expiring. and in social security taxes. but still encouraging news overall. >> i wonder, the banks have these strict guidelines now. much stricter than before because of the huge banking debacle. so i wonder are they lending money to folks who want to buy a home. that's going to be an issue, i think. >> that always helps spur things on. the bank loosens its grip on the green. that tends to help. and the federal reserve expected to release a statement that could have an impact on the markets in terms of their latest economic outlook. so stay tuned for that. >>> oil giant bp and the justice department have agreed to a record settlement in connection with the 2010 gulf oil disaster. in addition to paying $4 billion in penalties, the company agreed to plead guilty to manslaughter for the deaths of 11 workers on the deep water horizon rig. bp could pay billions more in civil claims for environmental damage. >>> another financial headline for you. there could be a big change coming to y

on this that will be posted later today. if you look back at ronald reagan, the conservative icon right? he raised taxes, seven out of eight years that he was president. he supported a ban on assault weapons. he supported and signed a bill creating amnesty for 3 million people who came here illegally. >> what a liberal. >> bill: if republicans -- ronald reagan could not get elected in the republican primary today and i just wish that -- not that i'm a great big fan of ronald reagan. but i wish republicans would just stop worshipping ronald reagan and start following him, start imitating him, and get that practical side to problem solving that ronald reagan did have. and he did support a ban on assault weapons, and in fact president obama quoted ronald reagan when he introduced his own gun-control measures. so immigration still probably going to happen before gun control, but the gun control battle has definitely joined after yesterday's hearing. bill joining us how are you? >> caller: hey, bill i just wanted to echo what ike said from charleston. >> bill: yeah. >> caller: and in

because corporate profits are up, costs are down, the fiscal cliff agreement has locked in low taxes for most of the upper-middle class and wealthy, and there's no sign of inflation as far as the eye can see. but corporate profits can't stay high when american consumers whose spending is 70% of the u.s. economy are this pessimistic about the future. they're just not going to spend. american companies won't be able to make up the difference in forward markets. europe is careening into a recession. japan is still in deep trouble. china's growth has slowed. profits are the highest share of the u.s. economy on record. wages are the lowest. but this imbalance can't and won't last. >> can't and won't. and look what's happening on wall street. they're doing better, willie, than ever before. >> mm-hmm. >> ever before. for the past four years, wall street has exploded over the past four years. real income has dropped for middle-class americans. the poverty rate's gone up. one in four americans are on food stamps. you talk about two americas. john edwards is right. >> incomes. >> over the past

should be paying taxes are living in the shadows. we need to make them fully contributing members for our society. our economy is denied the contribution of people who want to work hard and be productive members of the society. this has lingered unresolved for far too long. it is time to get it done, move on, and fixing our broken immigration system, and no one disagrees with that, is urgent. i support the efforts of this bipartisan group of senators. people always looking for acts of bipartisanship in this body. take a look at this. this is work that is exemplary and i commend each of them. it is an urgent priority. our nation needs a common-sense solution in a tough and smart path to citizenship for the estimated 10 million citizens in our country who are undocumented. i have been advocating these principles for years. i am pleased the bipartisan framework meets that criteria. i am encouraged to see progress and they are finding common ground. president obama has made immigration reform a top priority. it is my top priority. i am committed to getting this bipartisan issue that we now ha
